Simulation to explore strategies to reduce carbon emissions

Can you run a hotel that operates in the green and the black? A competitive simulation will challenge faculty, staff, and students to find out.

The UWill Discover Sustainable Futures executive has teamed up with the UWindsor Sustainability Office to present a NetZero Simulation on Tuesday, March 19. During the text-based digital simulation, participants run a hotel that must cut its carbon emissions by 50 per cent within seven years — no offsets allowed — while ensuring that the business still makes a profit.

The event begins at 11:45 a.m. in Alumni Auditorium, CAW Student Centre, and promises registrants a free lunch. Sign up as an individual or a team of two or three people.

“The event is an excellent opportunity to learn about effective strategies to reduce carbon emissions in a fun and engaging atmosphere,” says the UWill Discover Conference project lead Tim Brunet. “We are thrilled to team up with the Sustainability Office to offer this wonderful event!”
